Personal Description:

I am a qualified science teacher with over 15 years experience covering secondary, further and higher education. I am also an experienced examiner of biology and chemistry at A level so have a good knowledge of the requirements at this level, and at GCSE. I beleive that students find me very approachable and can quickly form a rapport with me which enables them to feel relaxed and at ease.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught biology and chemistry to A level for over 15 years, and have taught biology to degree level. I also have much experience of teaching all three sciences to GCSE. My students at A level and GCSE have achieved well, often beyond their expectations. I have also tutored students at GCSE and A level and students have been able to improve their expected grades, and have found my emphasis on exam technique helpful. My experience as an examiner at A level has also given me a unique insight into how to achieve the top grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to identify areas of weakness and use a variety of learning styles to improve these. Often students do not achieve as well as they might in exams due to poor exam technique. I use past papers and mark schemes to help students to improve, whilst also aiding their understanding of concepts. I think it is important to identify a students preferred learning style and to use strategies to work with this.
